We were very impressed with the relaxed atmosphere, but it was the food and the wait staff that made for an enjoyable evening! Our waitress was very knowledgeable of the menu, made excellent suggestions and paced our food to our relaxed tempo. She was sure to offer some historic tidbits about the Bistro and point out its unique stamp on... More

A big disappointment. Needed to make a reservation! really? When we walked in it was like a fast food restaurant. Seats by the window had decor of wooden boxes, odd. They were just in the way! Food was tasteless. Ambiance was loud!

Went to Bistro Rouge for the first time with another couple who live in the SW like we do. The restaurant surprised us all. The food was unbelievable and the staff were amazing. Must for the appetizers was the Cauliflower Fritters. They are delicious. My husband and the other man had the burger and both say it is the best... More

This restaurant has a lot going for it... A little out of the way - but once you've found them its worth the effort. Once through the entrance and into the back portion of the space you are treated to a pretty awesome view of the city. I recommend evening dining to really appreciate how the skyline sparkles. We were... More

Great atmosphere - our table of six was like being in our own private dining room, not noisy at all. Large windows overlooking the city. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The waiter was very personable fellow from the maritimes.

Wow I haven't had such good food since I was in the Okanogan wine country! Every mouthful was a party for my tastebuds. We had three delicious entrées ( birch bark backribs, lamb shank and the short ribs) as well as a lovely bi-color soup and Caprese salad. Everything was beautifully presented. Our server was delightful as well. Can't say... More

This is a fabulous hidden gem on the West Side of Calgary hidden across the road from Sunterra Market. They have some really interesting dishes here. I love their flattened pork or chicken with brie, pecan, apple and arugula or spinach. It sounds so different on the menu but it's absolutely delicious. The cauliflower fritters are to die for. Hate... More

Went on a night when the restaurant was almost completely empty. Nevertheless the service was slow and lacked enthusiasm. The food was ok but nothing special, which is not what I would expect in that price category.

This is a neighbourhood French 'bistro'. It's the bistro sister of it's high end Rouge restaurant in Inglewood. Bistro Rouge has a relaxed vibe, excellent food and friendly staff. The only downside? Not open for lunch:)

We had a gift certificate so decided to try out Bistro Rouge. The menu was limited but the Oven Roasted Red Spring Salmon Special sounded so good we all ordered it. None of us were disappointed. The service was acceptable, though it was not crowded and we still did not see our server much. Our wine was OK but pricey.... More
